    Games App alternate email

    Hi everyone,
    I use a different email address for my xbox live account than I do for my emails and windows 8 User Account. When I try sign into the 'Games' app it uses the email address I have for my win8 account, which is not the xbox live account I want to use. Is there anyway that I can use a different email address just for the games app? Thanks.

    Welcome to Windows EightForums, WillHodgson.

    Open Games app. Charms Bar > Settings > Account > Your account. It will open up immersive IE to give you the option to sign in with a different email account as shown below in the screenshot.
